For the crust:

Pulse cookies, sugar and melted butter in a food

processor to a uniform, mealy consistency.

Press into a lightly greased 9-inch springform pan. Chill while making the filling.

When hot, add the butter, apples and raisins.

Stir frequently for 10 minutes.

Pour the filling into the crust and bake until the center of the cheesecake registers 150 degrees on an instant-read thermometer, about 40 to 45 minutes.

Cool on a rack for 1 hour before releasing the pan's spring and removing the collar.

Cool another hour, then transfer to a serving plate.
